Chandler Hill group is one of many secret entities of  Scott Himelstein, the Director of Research at the University of San Diego.  His research findings were the justification for EUSD’s Board and Timothy Baird’s decision to include Ipads and Yoga into the budget despite a cost of millions of dollars and a lack of funding for core academics such as science.

Funded by Paul Tudor Jones and William Lynch,  Himelstein gains access to luxury toys such as Lynch’s Yacht to entertain and persuade local officials such as Timothy Baird to inject their agenda into school policy without parental or tax payer support.

Local researchers and superintendents have received  cushy job offers from Paul Tudor Jones Sonima Foundation shortly after pushing their agenda:
